It’s become a Podcast Magazine® tradition to celebrate dads around the world—those who serve in a ‘dad’ role, juggling myriad responsibilities, professionally and personally, while keeping their kids and families front and center—in our June issue.
In this post, we proudly present the results of the vote for this year’s favorite podcasts for, or hosted by, dads, on our…
Third annual list of the Top 50 Dads In Podcasting!
The role of “dad” typically includes, but is not limited to, provider, supporter, listener, fixer, friend, and teacher. Additionally, some are also entrepreneurs, simultaneously building and growing businesses. Still others carve out time in their already full schedules to share their experience and wisdom with the world, too, through podcasting.
Help us celebrate them this Father’s Day by subscribing to their podcasts now!
Congratulations to all the winners, to every dad who podcasts, and to men everywhere with the honorable title of “Dad.”
Happy Father’s Day from the Podcast Magazine team!
